February – March Highlights
February and March are some of the busiest monthly for our Club – see some of the highlights below.
2nd Annual Skating Club Games will be hosted on Monday Feb 17th (Islander Day) Ice times will be the same as usual. Skaters will enjoy a night of games and will be individually recognized for all their hard work this year!
2020 ADL STARSkate Championship (Star 1-3 Skaters) will be hosted by the Kensington Skating Club on Saturday Feb 22nd! We not only enjoy hosting young skaters from across the island but it’s also one of our biggest fundraisers of the year. Feel free to drop by on the 22nd and cheer on our skaters who have been working very hard this year, for many this will be their 1st competition!
We try to limit fundraising to a few key events each year but it’s important we make the most of each event to ensure we can cover our costs and minimize registration fee increases. We thank you in advance for your support!
Hospitality Room – Thankfully our generous Star Skate parents donate items for the hospitality room (parents will receive an email) If there are any extras required, we will post a note on our Facebook site to ask for support from other club members.
Bubble Gum Table – We ask that each family, if financially able, pick up a small prize or two. Item’s don’t have to be very big; they are generally dollar store item, individually wrapped candy etc although we welcome larger items as well. Participants buy a bubble gum and if there is a number written on it they win the corresponding prize. We ask that items be dropped off in the music room by Monday, February 17th at the latest.
Year End Ice Show will be hosted on Friday March 6th! The Theme this year is: “May All Your Dreams Come True”. This event is truly one of the highlights for all our skaters to showcase all they’ve learned this year. Our Coaches spend a lot of hours every year coming up with the theme, costume ideas and the performances for each group. Skaters are already in their groups they will perform with and have been working on their routines since early January.
Decorations – we are very fortunate to have a great group of board members, coaches, rink staff and our local high school who volunteer their time to buy and/or build our props and put up decorations the morning of the ice show. We also welcome parents who have a little time the morning of the event to help setup or after the event to tear down.
Costumes – We will be asking for 1-2 parents to lead the costumes for each group. We try and keep costumes simple, but they do require effort to prepare and coordinate. Each parent could be asked to contribute up to $10.00 for a costume fund.
Video – Sandpiper Studios will be recording the show again this year, it’s a great keepsake for families. This year the video will be posted online to download so no delivery will be required! Stay tuned for order details closer to the ice show.
